Apprenticeship Levy

Apprenticeship Levy

The government has set a target of recruiting 3 million new Apprentices in England between 2015 and 2020. The Apprenticeship levy introduced in May 2017, will support this initiative. The introduction of the levy and the changes in how Apprenticeships will be funded will impact all ​UK businesses: 

  • The levy will directly impact on those organisations with a wage bill of more than £3 million.
  • The levy will be paid at 0.5% of your wage bill at anything over £3 Million.
The Apprenticeship levy will fund the skills development of both your existing employees and new recruitments. The government will top up your contributions by 10% and you can spend all of this on Apprenticeships in England.

If you use up all your Levy funds you are still eligible for 90% funding toward further Apprentices. We can help you plan how to maximise the benefits of the levy.
